That said, thank you Gathacol Radio, for this wonderful collection. You probably know of Radio Dismuke. This playlist would fool me into believing of get this wonderful station that features 20's and 30's music, on at present.
Subject: Thank you for sharing
Does any one knows if i am allowed to use parts of these songs as samples in my original compositions?
as these songs were published in the U.S. before 1923 therefore do fall in public domain music.
I suppose we are lucky to even have them in any way, but I am naturally frustrated by not knowing the title of some of the tracks I have never heard before. The one labelled as "afghanis" is fascinating. It seems like such a memorable melody, yet I have been unable to find any info on it. If anyone knows more about the tune, please get in touch!

Subject: Credits for "Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia"
Isham Jones: "Sentimental Gentleman From Georgia"
Victor 24099 (recorded in Camden, NJ on 8/17/32 in Jones's first Victor session). Eddie Stone sings the vocal chorus.
"This was recorded at Victor's Camden studio. The original master remains nearly flawless, and if you're able, locate a re-recording...hearing it is like walking back in time. The speed and precision of this orchestra is astounding. Do a fox trot to this one. You'll get your heart rate elevated."
"Isham Jones Big Band from 1932 on Victor. Jones recorded primarily for Brunswick from 1924 - 1931, then switched to Victor with a largely enhanced Band, and hotter arrangements. Gordon Jenkins (of Frank Sinatra fame in the early 1950's after Axel Stordahl) is Jones Orchestrator for all the Victor Sessions and this period not to mention te Full Audio Spectrum sound of the "New" Othophonic Process, which helped to sell this Radiola/Elecrola Combo. Great sound and Fidelity."
